    8hrs to load?!? That’s even longer than crystal castles took on my old acorn electron. Still, at least you don’t have to faff around with cassette tapes. Progress, huh? 😂😉

    Not buying that then. I’ve a 2mb rural connection. That would take a week of continuous download.

    That’s the digital version but the disc version patch is probably pretty big.

    I presume if you buy the game from a shop you won’t need to do this?

    You’ll likely still have to download a big patch.

    Damn, that’s a lot of downloading. They should bring back cartridges.

    Those dynamic horse ballls take a lot of coding.

    “If you’ve bought the Xbox One version of the game you’re looking at a 107GB installation, while it’s a 99GB download on PS4 (as well as needing an additional 50GB of free space for the installation process itself). As far as we’re aware, that makes it the biggest PS4 game ever.

    Those install sizes remain the same if you’ve got the disc versions”

    Shit the bed.  I need to go on an uninstall spree.

    I might pick it up in 3 years so it’ll be cheap and fully patched and there’s loads of mods out for it. It’s the only way to buy games these days.

    To be fair, R* are pretty good at not releasing games till they’re ready.  Something as high-profile as this isn’t likely to be a complete bugfest.

    Generally I object on principle to paying full whack for games, prices are just silly.  I’ve made an exception for RDR2 though.

    100gb at 10mbits – which is even less than 2 megabytes per (1.25) seconds should only take about 24 hours according to download time calculators.

    It’s not going to take a week…if you are on a 2 mbit connect it will take four days though.

    Still, totes doable….

    Rockstar pretty much bet it right straight away as they don’t rush games year after year. Because of this the prices hold near original.

    Re downloading times. Just buy the disc. It’s a pretty easy workaround

    Yeah and it’s also the sequel to a pretty buggy game 😉

    I’ll probably buy the disc version, mostly because it’s usually £15 cheaper.

    My MO is to pick it up in the morning, slot it in the machine and leave it do it’s thing whilst I’m at work. I get 300Mbps at home, but I’ll never see that on launch day, I’ve seen it as low as 5Mbps on Xmas Day.

    At my old house I got a whopping 4.5Mbps, I bought one of the Grand Tourismo games on PS3, that really was a horrible mess of a game 48 hours for day 1 patch.

    The 25Gb disc will not quite hold 94Gb of data.

    XboxOne and PS4 can read dual-layer Blurays I believe, so 50GB, it’s not unusual to have multi-disc games (GTAV came on 7 discs for PC!).

    So in theory they could release a 2 disc game that’ll work ‘out of the box’ without a download, not saying they will though, much smaller games have been released “internet needed”.

    Stop it I’m already like a kid at Christmas.

    There’s also a few seconds of leaked play out there but I’m not leaving linking to that.

    Almost certainly.  Get an Xbox instead. (-:

    In seriousness, there’s little between the two.  The advice I usually give is “get what your mates have” then you can play online together.

    Given it needs a download too it’s likely not to unlock until midnight anyway but you never know maybe not.

    Even if it lands a day early I don’t think it will let you play it until the release date, will it?

    I bought a digital copy the other day, it’s downloaded onto my Xbox now,but won’t let me play it.

    Reviews are appearing now it’s IGN so not always reliable and I didn’t want to spoil it by reading the full review.
